1993 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Q&A

1993 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Question: how do I adjust the play in the steering system

There is too much play in the steering & there is a groaning sound when I make turns. -
Answer 1
Your steering box should have four bolts on top; this is a Type 800 Steering gear. Also on top is a 'lock screw',; nut must be loosened to tighten up slop in steering gear. Ideal/desirable steering gear play is less than one inch (left to right total while moving steering wheel back and forth). Occasionally check before tighting the lock nut. -
